Elderly man sheds tears as wife dumps him and their 4 disabled children to marry an MP

The four children; Kwabena, 20; Kojo, 15; Kwaku Tawia, 10, and Yaw Ewudzi, 8, are all living with different disabilities and live with their father in Abora Obokor in the Central region.

Patriarch of the Arkoh family, Kofi Arkoh who is 65-years-old, also has a deteriorating respiratory illness and has been struggling to take care of his sons since their mother left.

In an interview with Adom News, Mr Arkoh said, “she [his wife] has always threatened to leave me and the children, especially when my sickness deteriorated and indeed, she has carried out her threats. We have nothing as a family.”

He suspects that his wife must have been “shy associating herself with the family”, hence the insensitive decision to avoid dealing with disabled children and a sick husband at the same time.
